We show you how to factory reset the Motorola DROID Pro to clear all data and restore its original settings

The Motorola DROID Pro is highly customizable and you have been hard at work tweaking it to your liking, but now the fun is over and you want to return it to its factory settings again.

Here, we show you how to hard reset the Motorola DROID Pro with step by step instructions.

Please note that all data will be deleted from the Motorola DROID Pro as a result of this procedure. This process may or may not delete data stored on the microSD card. We recommend backing up all of your personal data before proceeding.

First, try this:

  1. From the main home screen, tap menu
  2. Tap Settings, then Privacy
  3. Tap Factory data reset
  4. Tap Reset phone
  5. Enter your password if required, then tap Erase everything to confirm

If that doesn't work, or if your phone is frozen:

    1. Power down the DROID Pro by holding the power button and then selecting Power Off
    2. Hold the X key on the keyboard and turn the power back on, keep holding down the X key until you see a yellow triangle icon
    3. Now close the slider and hold down the Volume Up button, then press the Camera button while still holding volume up
    4. A menu will appear and one of the choices will be "wipe data/factory reset" -- use the direction pad on they keyboard to select this option
    5. Scroll down using the direction pad to the "yes" option and select it with the d-pad select key

      All data including third-party applications will be deleted from the Motorola DROID Pro. Once the wipe is complete, the phone will reboot to its factory fresh state.
